Application Instructions and Program Contact

We participate in the Electronic Residency Application Service (ERAS) and the NRMP Pediatric Specialties Fall Match. For the July 2020 start date, applications are accepted through ERAS beginning July 5, 2019; we will be able to view applications starting July 15, 2019; interviews will take place between late August and mid-November 2019, and the Match will occur in December 2019.

Documents to be submitted through ERAS include:

  1. Common Application Form
  2. Personal Statement
  3. Medical School Transcript
  4. Medical Student Performance Evaluation (MSPE; Dean's Letter)
  5. Transcript of USMLE Scores (and/or COMLEX scores, if applicable)
  6. Three Letters of Recommendation (one of which is from your residency program director; for MD/PhD applicants, one letter should also be from the thesis advisor)

Upon review of each ERAS application, selected applicants will be extended invitations to interview (through Interview Broker) and will be expected to provide the program with three available dates they can visit. We are happy to provide one night’s hotel reservation and will send the confirmation with the interview itinerary. We also invite applicants to have dinner with current fellows and junior faculty members, which will be arranged for the night prior to the interview day. The interview day will include a tour of our clinical and research facilities, conference attendance, interviews with faculty within and outside of the Division of Pediatric Infectious Diseases, and lunch with several of our current fellows. Please expect to be with us from approximately 8 a.m. - 4 p.m. on your interview day.

Foreign medical graduates must be certified by the ECFMG and have completed residency training in an accredited United States or Canadian general pediatric or medicine-pediatrics residency program to be eligible to apply.

We appreciate your interest in our Infectious Diseases Fellowship Program and look forward to reviewing your completed application.
